Information of interest about the tiger mosquito (02/07/2019)

The Ministry of Health has disseminated tips to prevent the proliferation of the tiger mosquito in the Region of Murcia in order to reduce the discomfort they cause to people and the transmission of diseases.

These councils echoes the Department of Health Bullas City Council disclosing, in the form of triptychs and posters, information about the tiger mosquito.

Thus, it is explained that the tiger mosquito has a length of between 2 and 10 millimeters and is characterized by its black coloration with white ornamentation on the thorax and abdomen and its legs with white and black stripes.

In our environment, it prefers to deposit the eggs in small containers with stagnant water (buckets, pots, small deposits).

Therefore, it is important to prevent its proliferation in the home, avoiding having stagnant water.

"There is a regional surveillance system for the tiger mosquito, to which Bullas is attached," says Councilor for Health, Paqui Fernández, who adds that "with 2 sampling points for further study, all controls (4 so far from that the campaign began) have yielded negative results. "

Even so it is important to take into account a series of recommendations such as repellents on the legs because the tiger mosquito usually bites in the areas closest to the ground, carrying a correct body hygiene preventing them from being attracted by sweat and strong odors, and put mosquito nets or use electrical appliances against mosquitoes.

Among other means, you should also cover the domestic water tanks so that the mosquito does not enter, avoid accumulating garbage and throw it in closed plastic bags, and use screens or mosquito nets.
